    Hey there, wanting some more advice on applying for jobs. If a job application states:

    Please take your CV and Cover Letter into store or email both to [email protected]
    ...which would it be recommended that I do? Most jobs I'm applying to specifically ask for the CV and cover letter to be handed in-store, but the rest state something like the above, and in such a situation I'm not sure which is preferred. The "in-store" part does come first, but then the fact that an email is also given makes me think this will be how the majority of their applications come through, and that a physical CV may be disregarded, especially if it doesn't reach a manager.

    Does anyone have any experience or insight relating to this?

    Definitely hand CV to the store. At least then they'll see your behaviour therefore you need to make a good first impression.
    By that I mean don't go into the store looking scruffy - dress decently, but not too smart, a shirt and a pair of trousers/chinos. You cannot go wrong with that.
